Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. I never shared the Valentine handouts and box that I made for my daughter last year, so I thought I would share that with you today!
I always ask my daughter what she would like, and last year, she told me that she wanted something with bees! Kind of out of the blue, but we made it work! Ha!
We picked up some packs of licorice to give to her classmates and then wrapped them with yellow paper and black washi tape.
Next we added bee details using this super-cute bee image from the Lettering Delights Lil’ Peanuts collection. We wrote “Bee Mine” on a small jewelry tag, tied it on with a bit of pink and red baker’s twine, and then finished it off with a glittery pink heart. So sweet!
I had a bit of fun getting creative with Camryn’s Valentine box by making a beehive! She is my only kid doing Valentines at this point, and so I don’t mind taking a bit of extra time to create something detailed. I have a lot of fun doing it!
To create the beehive, I used the egg house from the Cotton Tail Village set by SVGCuts.com. The outside panels are embossed with an embossing folder from the Lifestyle Crafts Spotted set (large polka dot).
I also created more bees and attached them to the beehive with curly wires. I poked holes into the sides of the beehive once it was complete and hot glued/taped the wires into position. They looked so cute buzzing all around!
I used scissors to handcut the slit for the cards in the top, and also a hole in the round boxlid, so that the cards would fall down into the round box.
I added Camryn’s name to the box with red thickers and then embellished the box using pearl border stickers, pearl daisy stickers, and silk daisies from the dollar store. I added red rhinestones to the centers of the larger daisies for a bit of sparkle. It turned out so cute!
How about you? What types of creative projects do you make for Valentine’s Day?
See you next week!
